Savannah man sentenced for attempted murder of a police officer

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

A Savannah man has been sentenced to 45 years in prison after pleading guilty to attempted murder of a police officer.

Keenan Ramon Green, 19, pleaded guilty to criminal attempt to murder, aggravated assault on a police officer, two counts of possession of a firearm during commission of a felony, possession of a firearm by a first offender, theft by taking a vehicle, theft by receiving a vehicle, and fleeing and eluding. Green apologized to Officer Jason Pagliaro for shooting out the back window of his car, pursuing him for several blocks, and firing at him multiple times.

Green was sentenced to 45 years in prison with 35 to serve, including a 20 year concurrent sentence for burglary. The 9 mm handgun that was recovered at Greene's arrest was reported stolen in a burglary Jan. 7.

Green was taken into custody on Jan. 18 after the stolen car he was driving broke an axle and police officers boxed him in.

Pagliaro was on patrol when he received the report of a stolen white Chevrolet Monte Carlo. Pagliaro spotted the car and passed a red Monte Carlo to get behind the white vehicle. As soon as he passed, shots were fired at him from the red car, which also had been stolen and was being driven by Green. Pagliaro tried to speed away but the red car continued to follow him and fired repeatedly. Pagliaro then turned his car around and joined other patrol cars that followed the red car.
